What is BellaContour?

The BellaContour procedure uses a combination of gentle ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and vacuum massage to remove unwanted fat painlessly and efficiently. The BellaContour treatment stimulates fat cells so that fat is released and then eliminated as part of the body’s natural metabolic process. The BellaContour patented technology has been cleared by FDA. The patents cover non-invasive weight-loss procedures to accelerate metabolic processes and dissolve fat cells via Lymphatic drainage, Electric current and Ultrasound.
This non-invasive, pain-free circumference reduction is safe and effective for the love handles/flanks, thighs, buttocks, abdomen, face and neck. The benefits are immediate and long-lasting, with slow, steady fat loss occurring over a 10 treatment series.

Is BellaContour effective?

Patients see results on their first treatment, but a full series of 10 treatments is needed to achieve optimal results. We recommend a series of twice a week procedures for a total of 10 treatments. Based on our data gathered since 2008, patients lose between 2.15" to a maximum of 6.2" in one area with an average of 0.8" during their first treatment. The procedure is totally painless and, in fact, so comfortable that patients enjoy the 1 hour session as much as a body massage.

Is BellaContour safe?

The BellaContour device has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for enhancing muscular blood flow and reshaping the body. Studies over the last 5 years show zero side effects. The procedure is gentle, painless and there are no needles involved.

How long does it take to see results?

Most patients see results immediatly after their first treatment. At the end of each treatment you will see your image on the BellaContour screen and be able to compare it with your older photos which are stored on the BellaContour system. Optimal results are achieved through a series of 10 treatments.

Who are the best candidates to undergo a BellaContour treatment?

Body contouring with BellaContour is an ideal treatment for individuals who are slightly-to-moderately overweight and have unwanted fat around the waist, love handles, upper and lower belly, inner thighs, outer thighs, back and arms. BellaContour effectively treats cellulite, stretch marks and pregnancy fat. The result is a tighter skin, reduced wrinkles and smaller circumferences, without any needles, surgery, diet or exercise and with zero downtime. Facial contouring with the BellaContour is ideal for patients who wish to reduce significantly their facial fat, improve their facial skin appearance and reduce their fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars.

How does BellaContour differ from other body contouring devices in the market?

Whereas most body contouring devices treat patients who have mild-to-moderate amounts of extra fat, BellaContour, being at the forefront of body contouring technologies, is well recognized as the most effective fat and cellulite reduction treatment ideal for individuals that have more amounts of unwanted fat and for those individuals who are moderately overweight. BellaContour works deeper than any other device in the market. It works on the top layer of the skin to deliver a micro-massage and accelerate blood flow deep under the skin's tissues. It is designed with a combination of Dual Program Mode and Real Time Resonance Technology to treat multiple layers of skin in one session. This technology, coupled with an electrode system, produces the best known results in the market to date.

What is the post treatment recovery like?

Unlike any other devices in the market who use heat or laser technologies, there is absolutely no recovery time after the BellaContour treatment. Your skin will look completely normal without any signs of treatment. You will be able to return to all your daily activities immediately after treatment.

Is BellaContour a cavition machine? Does it harm or remove the fat cells?

BellaContour is not a cavitation device. Unlike other procedures in the market, BellaContour does not harm or eliminate fat cells. Recent studies show that the human body regulates the number of the fat cells (except in severe cases of obesity), so changing/reducing the number of the body’s fat cells is not only unnatural and unhealthy but ultimately causes our body to substitute the damaged or removed fat cells with new and often less attractive fat deposits. On the other hand, BellaContour merely shrinks the fat cells by extracting the fatty acids, resulting in longer lasting results, very similar to the way fat cells are shrunk through diet and exercise.

Is BellaContour FDA approved?

Yes, the BellaContour is approved by The Food and Drugs Administration 510(K) number K063728.

What do you mean by “natural process”?

The BellaContour simulates the body’s natural process by extracting the fatty acids from fat cells; the same process that our body undergoes during exercise when we consume energy from the fat cell. When we consume energy, however, the body consumes the fatty acids from random areas in our body and not necessarily where we want to lose fat. The BellaContour allows us to “spot reduce” and choose where to lose, be it abdomen, thighs, buttock, arms etc.

How long is the treatment?

Each treatment includes measuring target areas and taking photos before and after the treatment. Overall, each treatment lasts between 60 to 90 minutes.

How often can I be treated with BellaContour?

The recommended frequency for both Body and Facial contouring is twice a week, however, not more than one treatment every 48 hours.

Is the treatment painful?

No. The treatment is a pleasant gentle ultrasound massage on the treated area.

How long after the treatment can I see results?

In the vast majority of cases, results are noticeable after the very first treatment. The BellaContour system includes an attached digital camera that stores photos before and after treatments, to allow analyzing results immediately.

How long will the results last?

The results last as long as you do not gain significant weight. As long as you retain the same lifestyle, the results will last virtually forever. You don't need any special diet and/or vitamins during or after the treatment. Though not necessary, but for further results we recommend walking.

What areas can I treat with the BellaContour?

Every part of the body, face and neck can be treated by the BellaContour.
